arohara --  it is the expression term  the original,  correct root term being  Haro--haraa.  hare krishna --  here also the hare means invoking the expansive energy of Krishna.   

The word 'arOharA' is a shortened form of the phrase 'ara harO harA'. Its meaning is: 'Oh God Almighty, please remove our sufferings and grant us salvation'.

The word 'arOharA' is a shortened form of the phrase 'ara harO harA'. Its meaning is:

'Oh God Almighty, please remove our sufferings and grant us salvation'.

This was first used by Saivaites (followers of Saivam - worship of Shiva), at the time of Thirunyanasambandhar. During Thirunyanasambandhar's journeys, the bearers of his 'pallakku' and followers had the habit of chanting (meaningless) phrases - like 'yElEloh yElEloh', as a form of stress relief. Thirunyanasambandhar taught them to replace these with the meaningful 'ara harO harA'.

Haraa means shiva.  Haran -- Shivan. 
Haran's shakthi (the all expansive energy of hara ) is hari.  Hara is the male aspect -- Vishnu is the sakthi aspect.

That is why Vishnu and Ambaal are brothers and sisters .  Vishnu rupini -- govindha rupini --  ambaal is vishnu herself.  Brahman in the expansive shristhi  -- the vyooha is hari.

Dear Krishnan,

Excellent. If one could know that Vishnu is the male form of Sakti or Sakti is the female form of Vishnu, all the quarrels and
fights that had taken place in the past among Vaishnavites and Saivites would not have been there.  Vishnu maya vilasini says
Lalita Sahasranamam.

Why only Vishnu? Sakti is also Kumaran (Murugan) when she is Kaumari. She is Brahma (the creator), when she is Brahmi, and
so on.

Saint Tirunavukkarasar says in one of his Tevaram songs:

Ari allAl devi lliai iyAarArke.....

Ari = Hari
allAl      = without
devi = Uma
iyAru - tiruvaiyaru, a Siva temple
Arke = one who resides in the temple of Tiruvaiyaru.

I think Appaya Dikshitar also has composed one song to this effect.

Arunachala Siva.
